Maggie needed a very unique training program and Jeff very successfully executed it! Maggie is a happier dog, too!

The Animal Haven requested help from Jeff Gellman, owner of Solid K9 Training, about a dog named Maggie who was under-socialized and started to bite our staff and dog walkers. We solicited help from various dog trainers, but Maggie bit them all. The Animal Haven was very concerned about Maggie’s quality of life at our no-kill shelter especially because of her limited interaction with humans. Jeff took Maggie to his training facility and made immediate progress with her. Jeff identified what triggered Maggie to bite and corrected this undesirable behavior. Jeff then started obedience training and socialized Maggie with people, children and other dogs. Maggie needed a very unique training program and Jeff very successfully executed it! Maggie is a happier dog, too!
Recently, Jeff visited our shelter to instruct humans on how to train the other challenging dogs at The Animal Haven. Jeff’s training techniques are humane, gentle and very effective. The dogs learned to be obedient in a very short period of time. Jeff provided canine insight to address each dog’s specific issues. It was amazing to witness six of our spirited dogs become more obedient in 2 hours under the instruction of Jeff Gellman. Plus, the training class was great fun that significantly benefited both humans and canines! We are now more confident that, with Jeff’s assistance and training, our dogs have a better chance to be adopted into loving permanent homes.
